The Council’s power, functions and duties are all prescribed either expressly or implied by various Acts and Regulations, with the most significant being the Local Government Act 2002. Collectively, this legislation sets the framework within which the Council and its staff must operate.
The Council delegates responsibilities to Committees, Community Boards and Officers to assist in the effective and efficient implementation of its functions, duties and powers.
The Governance Structure 2022-25 below sets out the terms of reference and delegations for the committees and other decision-making bodies of Council, as well as Council appointments. In this regard, the Governance Structure supersedes the Delegations Register (also linked below), which will be updated in due course to remove references to committee structure and delegations, and appointments made by the Council.
